The first-ever Alberta Masters Games got underway Friday in Rocky Mountain House.
Close to 1,000 athletes from across the province will gather over the weekend to compete in 12 different sports.
The inaugural games are designed to offer athletes over the age of 30 a competitive environment for their sporting pursuits.
“These Games are a tremendous opportunity for our province’s masters-aged athletes to participate and stay active while competing in a province-wide multi-sport competition,” said Alberta Sport Connection Chair Stephen Norris.
“ASC is looking forward to working with all the host communities and welcoming athletes from across our province to the 2019 Alberta Masters Games.”
